Any people with fitness experience here? I'm looking at shedding a few pounds at the moment. Although diet is one thing that I'm looking at, I've known for a while now that I need to start doing some exercise. The problem is, I hate running or cycling. I've always felt my body is not built for that kind of thing. Swimming is great but I don't have the time to go to the nearest pool. I don't want to join a gym as 1) I don't have time to go to a gym and 2) they cost an insane amount in London. I've been looking at buying a good used rowing machine but haven't had much joy in snapping one up. Now I live right next to a park and large grassy heath so there's the nearby space to do exercise for free. As I said though, I hate jogging. My breath gets tight, my knees start to ache and I feel so miserable that every time I do it, it puts me off for ages. I do enjoy walking and there are some big hills around here but again, time is an issue. This brings me to sprinting. I can run pretty fast for short stretches which knacker me out, blow the breath out of me and send my heartrate through the roof. Googling suggests this can be 'better' than jogging but most google results are linked to people trying to push their paid exercise schemes so I take the stuff with a pinch of salt - hence why I'm looking to see if anyone who knows fitness type stuff can offer any advice on here. In terms of my physique, I'm a naturally broad guy and I've always been naturally very strong. When hitting the gym in the past, my body has responded very quickly to strength type weight exercises - bench press, leg press etc. Does anyone have any tips? Is sprinting actually a good way to lose weight and build strength or it it a pipe dream 'shortcut'?
